ab: Summary: According to the Singapore primary mathematics curriculum, it is
important that students tackle a variety of mathematical problems,
including real-world problems, as they apply their mathematical
problem-solving skills. This paper examines the challenges and
affordances of using real-world problems with young children in a
primary school in Singapore. Using the laboratory class cycle, the
teachers in the study planned, observed and critiqued a mathematics
lesson using real-world problems for primary two children. Data in this
study includes the teachersâ€™ conversations during the laboratory
cycle and the studentsâ€™ responses during the observed mathematics
lessons using real-world problems. Our findings show that the
real-world problem used in this study generated rich mathematical
classroom discussion. The teachersâ€™ learning from using real-world
problems through the laboratory cycle and the challenges they faced
were discussed in this study.
